It’s a pretty common occurrence for fans and analysts to make bold predictions about a game or season. If the prediction doesn’t come true, then that’s OK - you said it was bold! If it DOES come true, though... now you look like a genius!

So in that spirit, some of the Canal Street Chronicles writers were asked to share with me a bold prediction or two for the Week 6 of the regular season for the New Orleans Saints: their first game out of the Bye against the Detroit Lions. This is their chance to look brilliant!

Here are a few of the bold predictions provided by some of the contributors at Canal Street Chronicles:

  • The Inevitable - Drew Brees throws his first and second interceptions of the season. (JM)
  • Wouldn’t it be nice... - The Saints get over .500 for the first time since 2013. (JR)
  • THAT’S Bold - The Saints go another game without a turnover. (Chad)

Here are my three bold predictions for the game:

  • The Saints outrush the Lions 2:1.
  • The Saints create one more turnover than they lose this game.
